You can choose a start index of 0 or 1, and you can specify either WebVTT or SubRip (or both) as your output format.

Note that your subtitle files are placed in the same location as your transcription output.



Specify the output format for your subtitle file; if you select both WebVTT (vtt) and SubRip (srt) formats, two output files are generated.
